The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the allegation by the main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that N15trillion has been stolen under the present administration.
National Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John James Akpanudoedehe in a statement said only PDP faithful believe what he called “its deviant tales”.
Senator Akpanudoedehe said the APC led administration has not departed from its commitment to transparency and anti-corruption crusade.
He disclosed that the past time of the erstwhile ruling party was petroleum subsidy rackets, unexecuted electricity, CCTV, roads, to arms contracts to fight the North-East insurgency.
“The PDP is obviously hungover these forgotten and discarded years of the locust. Under President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria has left that era.”
The statement further read in part: “The most ardent critics of the President Buhari and the APC government he leads will definitely chorus one fact: This government is unsparing and does not condone thieves within and outside government. Nigeria is definitely not where it was in terms of the pervasive corruption, the impunity that ultimately ended the PDP administrations 16 years of the locust.
“With the implementation of Treasury Single Account, Biometric Verification Number (BVN), Whistle Blowing policy among other initiatives undertaken by the President Buhari administration, the fight against corruption remains one of the strongest successes of this administration.”
“For a rudderless party blinded by its tactless opposition politics, we don’t expect the PDP to see the impact and commendations these initiatives have received and the increased government savings it has brought to fund ongoing and critical infrastructure projects across the country.”
The APC further recalled that “the bribe-for-jobs and other employment rackets perpetuated under PDPs watch remains one of the most disgraceful and lowest points in our nation’s history. Nigerians will recall how a PDP government fleeced young job seekers of application fees under the pretext of mass recruitment.
Many died and where maimed in the 2014 Nigerian Immigration Service recruitment exercise for advertised vacancies that had been allegedly sold off by job racketeers. Under President Buhari, Nigeria has left that era.”
